Lizzy's Photo Op

Lizzy, the tiny baby alligator lizard that K found nine days ago, continues to thrive. We'd been limiting ourselves from holding her, as her size makes her seem so very delicate, but we made a temporary exception in these photos, inviting her to crawl only the kids' fingers. She's eating a lot - at least two crickets a day and watching her do that is fascinating. The crickets are about half the length of her abdomen and so you'd think that consuming them would be a impossible feat, but she does it quickly by swallowing them whole, sometimes taking a while to gulp down the final swallow as antennae remain sticking out of her mouth. Definitely gross, but cool, too.
